Never played Tropico, but I do love Sims 3! I've got the Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, and World Adventures expansion packs. Plus a bunch of downloaded content.

We're very excited to see all the bugs worked out of it!

We have also preordered it. Five days of early access, yes thanks!

I did not like this game. I thought it was really lacking in a lot of areas. Much better MMO's out there imo.

I am assuming you are a parent right? If that's the case the market is kind of dead right now. There are a couple really good games but they require a lot of time investment. More time than most parents have to spend on it. Unless you don't mind playing older games of course. World of Warcraft or Everquest 2 a really good choices. They both have a ton of content and are very similar in the way the game is designed. However it's a lot less grinding then the most popular new MMOs out right now.

I do like eso more than many mmos out there but still... I guess I've played too many over the years, just doesn't hold my interest. Not the game itself but the hordes of 13 yo d00ds really ruin the (otherwise) great ambiance.

I have a big 'crush' now though, one I havent had in mmo filled years! If you enjoy story I recommend the secret world. Style wise it's very original - modern day setting with a touch of fantasy/magic/sci-fi. It's refreshing to play an mmo which mentions the Internet, modern day events etc. Heck some characters have their own active twitter and youtube channels. Makes the story eerily real. How cool is that

The secret world is a fun game and the only reason I didn't suggest it is because there's nothing to do when you get to the end. I love having a game to play. It's pretty much part of who I am because I've been playing since I was 14 years old and I'm 28 now.
